A bizarre video claiming to show a “tic tac-shaped UFO ” moving slowly near the top-secret military base Area 51 has sent alien enthusiasts into meltdown.
A driver travelling on Highway 62 close to Palm Springs in California, US, witnessed the white disc and claimed it measured about 70 feet long.
In the clip, a flat white object is seen floating mid-air above the highway. It appears to be moving along the Mount San Jacinto towards the space where the wind mills are.
The driver, who went on the route regularly due to work purpose, said: “I’ve seen clouds around the mountains very often but never like this.”
Conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring, who is known for his outlandish claims, said on his blog UFO Sightings Daily that the so-called sighting happened near Area 51 might due to the proximity to the wind farms.
He wrote: “This is an interesting video of a white tic tac shaped UFO.
“The UFO was seen as a person was heading to work along Highway 62 near Palm Springs. The wind farm is located in Palm Spring outskirts.
“The eyewitness at first believes it to be a cloud and then soon realised it was probably a UFO.”
